storm will be on those that do actually vote? will it help president obama? liz: isn't it true though in past elections and charles you have pointed this out too, that the democrats benefit more from the early get out the vote campaign, because president obama has a really aggressive grassroots, boots on the ground campaign. will that get out the vote campaign be hurt by hurricane sandy? will it affect the democrat turnout for the president? >> all the early polling, liz, is confirming what you are saying, which is the early vote is going to the president. i think it will slow that down now. the question is, can the president get those people back on election day? but bottom line, i think even more important, the image of leadership that the president is projecting with chris christie helps him in the waning days. charles: really? >> oh absolutely. charles: really? i mean almost all political pundits is good listen as long as the guy doesn't trip, you know, fall. this is one of these things where, you know, it is a good thing. it looks good, but, you know, will it sway an independent

romney wins the popular vote by one point and obama wins high row in iowa by one point that is possible, maybe one or two-point shift, but there is hmm no way to look at the history of this country or try to do the more complex things i do mathematical models of it, very unlikely to have win the popular by four or five point and lose the electorial poll. >> rose: why go the polls show romney winning the national vote and not winning the majority of swing states? >> well i should say gallup is something of an exception, if you look at the average of polls, for example, the abc news, washington post poll has am exactly tied race nationally, wall street journal poll has a tide race. >> say that then, but the swing states, if they are tied, i mean if the national poll is tied why should didn't swing states be that way, if they are essentially copying the national bowls? >> because to me to have a tie versus a two-point lead for obama in ohio which is where we have ohio that is not that big of a difference this ohio wow might have a circumstance hike for example the auto bailouts wh
